To be quite honest, THAT WAS FOOLISH!!

Well,, its April fools day and I was thinking about some of the things I have done in my life that were foolish. Honestly there are so many at this point I could not name them all. You know when an idea enters your brain and sounds "fantastic",,,,,, then,,,, while acting it out,,, it hits you:

I am a moron and now I pay the consequences!!


Kinda like when I dyed my hair black one time and looked like a corpse. Or there is the time I was starting a new job and was blowing off some steam with my kids the night before.

Wanna hear about it? Of course you do!! Here I go:

My new clothes were laid out: Skirt, blouse, black hose and heels. I even had the jewelry ready to go and my make-up and perfume strategy planned (I sound insane with that I realize,, but its true, I did, it is organization, and I am a woman, and there is no time for indecision in the morning).

Everything was laid out on the bed, it was almost as if the "Wicked Witch of the West" was in my bedroom, got doused with water and shrunk leaving her clothes behind, only my pantyhose did not have purple stripes and my shoes were not THAT pointy...

I would start at one of those big Mahogany and marble banks promptly at 8. I was a little nervous. The kids were playing and I had a thought of something my dad used to do for us. He would draw eyes and a nose on his upside down chin, lay on the bed and call us in for some laughs. I decided to do this for my kids and drew a fancy shamancy face on my chin with make-up and glitter, covered my body with a sheet and called in the troops. It went over well. The laughter filled the room and I felt calmed for the moment. Then they wanted to do it so I painted faces on them from make-up in my purse which was right next to me. Again laughter success!!!!



Example "chin puppets":




I had since wiped my "face" off so the girls asked if they could put a "new" face on me. Sure, why not, so I laid down. I was told I should cover my eyes so I would not know what colors they used,, again I complied. I heard them in my bag. Laughing and planning. Then the drawing started. Liquid eyeliner and permanent sharpie markers feel exactly the same on chin skin (ask me how I know?).

I could not get the eyes (with FANTASTIC LONG LASHES) and small button nose off my chin. No matter what I used, they would not come off. I was going to go to my new job at the "Grand Mahogany Bank" with: eyes and a nose on my chin!!

"WHY WOULD YOU USE A SHARPIE?????!!!!"

****shrugs*****

"Why not???"

"It's PERMANENT INK!!!!!! SAYS IT RIGHT THERE!!!!"

"Oh no!!!"

***uncontrollable kid laughter***

FACEPALM

Luckily,, after about three more showers and 10 scrubbing sessions, the marks dwindled down in the morning a bit. And after concealer and powder it looked like I had three bruises which faintly resembled a face but a "normal" person would have no clue it was a "chin puppet" mishap.

I got "what happened to your chin?" all day!! I told them it was a roller blading accident (because I am cool like that!)

Foolish of me for not supervising better....yes......

funny....yes.....

a memory for my kids.....yes......

Some foolish things are wonderful reminders that we are all human and are going to mess up from time to time.

Have you done anything silly recently you would like to share,,, or am I the only one???

I crashed on my bike as it was kicking out time at the local school. I ripped my trousers (and boxers) almost completely off so I had to carry the bike home with one hand and cover my unmentionables with the other - in front of an army of 4-9 year olds!

Great story, thanks!

That's a really good strategy for when you aren't happy.

When your frown
is upside-down,
it looks like a
smile :-)
